The EU Permanent Council at OSCE asked the Russian government to release Ukrainian movie maker Oleg Sentsov. This is mentioned in the authority's respective tweet.

Earlier, Ukraine's vice speaker of the Parliament Iryna Gerashchenko reported worsening of the health conditions of Oleg Sentsov and Volodymyr Balukh, the Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia. 

She also added that Ukraine did not get Moscow’s reply to Kyiv’s offer to release more than 30 convicted Russians in exchange for the release of the Ukrainian hostages. “We were informed about the deterioration of the health condition of Volodymyr Balukh, Oleg Sentsov and others,” Gerashchenko wrote on Facebook.
